Submitting assignments (for students)

Category: Help for Students

Assignments can be submitted electronically to Brightspace, making it easier for you to receive grades and feedback on your work. This might save time emailing assignments, or handing them on paper, either if working alone or in a group.

You may either have to submit a file or a written text in the assignment text box.

Once your assignment has been submitted, a confirmation email will be sent to your TUDelft email address as proof that you have submitted your assignment. It is recommended that you save this email for future reference.
